Castle is an American comedy drama that tracks the contrivances of Richard Castle. This male lead is portrayed by Nathan Fillion. The show drifts away the anxiety that’s usually associated with police-procedurals. For, Richard is a detective who’s one of his own kinds. He starts out as a drab mystery novelist, aspiring to make it big one day.
Time flutters by and Richard confronts a challenging yet tempting offer from the NYPD. As fate would have it, Richard soon hits the road, solving real cases instead of fictional ones. Soon, Cupid also bestows its blessings on this quirky, yet, affable detective as he gets to work with gorgeous Beckett (played by Stana Katic) and soon falls for her. The two begin to trail the ‘copycat killer’ who’s murdering people in the exact way as portrayed in the novels.
Richard not only perceives Beckett as someone special, but also as the muse for his upcoming fiction. The idea strikes him of making Beckett, a protagonist of his next fictional project. Beckett agrees with his plan as she’s been a huge fan of Castle and his books. This show on ABC tickles the funny bone, as the gore element is tinted with a touch of humor. This crime drama unleashes a flurry of light-hearted punches that make one break into fits of convulsive laughter.
Each of its seasons showcased a mélange of bewildering cases as the Richard-Beckett duo get into the nitty-gritty of them. The ancillary characters in the form of Castle’s daughter Alexia (Molly Quinn), his mother Martha (Susan Sullivan) and other detectives add on to the entertainment quotient of the show. This crime writer turned cop, delivers gags that result in instant chuckles.
